    Lantern Festival - March 4th


    This year's Lantern Festival falls on March 4 and it's one of the three major traditional festivals in Chinese folk (the other two are Spring Festival and Mid-autumn Festival). With a history of more than 2000 years, Lantern Festival is celebrated grandly. Its celebrative activities mainly consist of three parts: the daytime Huahui (lively and jolly celebrations), the nighttime Denghui (display of various lanterns) and eating Yuanxiao (sweet dumplings made of glutinous rice flour)....MORE from the China Daily on this year's Lantern Festival.
